Steel sculpture of a cow, painted in various colours.
This sculpture was originally intended for a site close to the old cattle lairage off Seville Place - Spencer Dock. From there cattle were shipped to England and so the sculpture got its theme. Originally the sculpture had port-holes in it to represent the ships that took the cattle from the city across the Irish Sea, however these were filled in before it was displayed in the park.
